Anmol Chana,25, from Smethwick has been charged with the murder of his mother and step-father at their home in Oldbury. Mr Chana will appear in court on Thursday morning accused of killing Jasbir Kaur, 52, and her husband Rupinder Singh Bassan, 51.
The couple were found dead at their home in Moat Road at around 4am on Tuesday. Police forced their way into the couple’s home, after concerns had been raised for their welfare. Jasbir and Rupinder were pronounced dead at the scene having suffered serious injuries. Police had previously described the incident as “domestic-related”.
Chana was arrested a short time after police discovered his mother and step-father’s bodies, from his home address in Hamilton Road, in Smethwick. On Wednesday afternoon he was charged with their murders and will appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.
The couple’s Toyota Aygo, which had disappeared from their home address, was found on Wednesday morning in the Smethwick – after a member of the public spotted West Midlands Police’s appeal to track down the car.
The car will now be examined by forensic experts.
Detective Inspector Hannah Whitehouse, from West Midlands Police who is leading the investigation, said: “I would like to thank people for the response to our appeal which has directly led us to recovering the car.
“We are continuing to support the family of Jasbir and Rupinder at this awful time.”
Neighbours had yesterday spoken of their shock after Jasbir and Rupinder had been found dead at their house in Oldbury, near to Q3 Academy, 5Star Day Nursery and Barnford Park.
Residents living near to Moat Road described it as a normally “peaceful, quiet street”.
Sylvia Unitt, of nearby Westmead Road, said: “It is a lovely quiet road, people bring children to the schools and nurseries, dog walkers in the park nearby. It’s so friendly and lovely round here.
“It is a lovely, friendly area. I have lived here all my life. Nothing like this has ever happened before. It is a complete shock.
